27th May, 2017

Saturday 27th May 2017 – Do I feel comfortable in my own home? Well, for nearly 8 months the simple answer to this question would have been a resounding no! I’ve dreaded being at home.

21st May, 2017

21st May 2017 – I’m flying back to the UK today after a short break cycling in France. The trip has been exactly what I needed and a massive departure from the last time I went cycling with this group back in September 2016 last year. The nice thing has been that everybody has noticed the
